Sociolinguistic Studies offers a linguistic and cultural bridge between the Romance world -particularly the Spanish and Latin American world- and the English-speaking world.
The journal publishes substantial research papers, discussion notes, reviews and review articles (the Book Review Editor is Aneta Pavlenko, Temple University), and regularly publishes thematic issues.
We consider that bilingualism and multilingualism is an essential field linking sociolinguistics with other disciplines (psycholinguistics, linguistic anthropology, pedagogy, etc.).
The journal will also pay special attention to theoretical and methodological contributions from sociology, social psychology or anthropology that can give consistency to the theoretical and methodological principles of sociolinguistics, and to make known the conceptual evolution in the social sciences among sociolinguists.
There are three issues per volume year (April, August, and December), the first issue, with the new title, is due in April 2007.
Sociolinguistic Studies is a peer-reviewed journal in two formats: online and in hard copy, internationally diffused and distributed (ISSN: 1750-8649 -hard-, ISSN: 1750-8657 -online).
